    UK - Riley Commins, 23, Australian, London, 30 May 2016

    Riley, 23, was due to return to his Caloundra home from London last Thursday, June 3, after a month-long graduation celebratory holiday.

    His mum Janelle Griffiths was waiting for him at the airport with his girlfriend Reanna Bench.

    But he never arrived.

    The last the family and friends had heard from him was on Monday, May 30, when he told them how he was looking forward to getting home and seeing everyone again.

    His last card transaction history at the Yotel Heathrow Airport on the Monday, the day before he was due to fly home.

    Police have yet to confirm if it was Riley who used the card.

    Ms Griffiths sat at the Brisbane airport for two hours waiting for her son who never arrived.

    She had a "mother's intuition" something was wrong before the plane landed.

    "I hadn't heard from his since Monday and I wondered why," Ms Griffiths said.

    Riley had shared his flight details with his mum and told her how much he was looking forward to getting home.

    She thought he would contact her en-route from Korea, but he never did.

    "I hoped everything was all right and he just couldn't get to us," she said.

    When Riley didn't turn up at the airport, Ms Commins went to police who contacted the Australian Federal Police and it was confirmed Riley wasn't on the flight.

    That night, Riley's father Tony Commins filed a missing person's report in his home town of Alice Springs and the family have been in contact with Australian government agencies to initiate the search for their son.

    Riley's sister Natalie said they hadn't received any word from London police as to how the investigation was going.

    But Mr Commins was due to arrive in London on Monday (June 6) to search for answers.

    The family has created a Facebook page, Help find Riley Commins, to get the world to help find their much-loved son.

    The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has advised it is working with Australian and United Kingdom police authorities in the search.

    "DFAT is providing consular assistance to the man's family. Due to our Privacy Act obligations, we will not provide further comment," a spokeswoman said.

    A Queensland family is desperately searching for a 23-year-old Australian traveller who disappeared in London last week.

    Riley Commins, who had just completed a business degree, had been on a Contiki tour and was spending his last few days in London before he was meant to return home.

    He was last heard from on May 30 at about midday when all correspondence ceased.

    "It's very concerning and it's very out of character for Riley to not have contact with anyone," Riley's sister Natalie Commins said.

    He had stayed overnight at the Royal National Hotel on May 29.

    He believed he had another night at the accommodation, but was incorrect and is thought to have left the hotel on May 30.

    "His last known card activity occurred at Yotel Heathrow Airport at an ATM at approx 6:35pm on the 30/05/16 but this is not confirmed to be him as of yet," a Facebook page set up to aid the search states.

    That payment was declined but money went into his account a short time later, however his family says he hasn't accessed his bank account or Travelex cards since.

    The 23-year-old is described as street savvy, responsible and independent and his sister says it is "very unlike him" for him not to contact anyone if he was in trouble.

    He was meant to come home on a Korean Airlines flight scheduled to leave on May 31 at 7.20 pm London time, but the airline confirmed he never boarded the plane.

    His mother and girlfriend didn't know he didn't make the flight and went to greet him at the airport on the morning of June 2.

    He was reported missing that day by his father who is now on his way to London to assist in the search.

    Riley had a temporary phone and his family says it is possible it ran out of battery as his charger was accidentally left in Iceland.

    He is described as Caucasian, has brown hair, brown/hazel eyes, and is about 6 feet tall with a lean build.

    "The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Interpol and local police in London are involved but we have no leads so far," the Facebook page states.

    The family is hoping investigators can provide more information soon and are hoping authorities can seek CCTV in the area where Riley was last seen.

    "It's very frustrating," Natalie Commins said.

    "The investigators have been searching but have not uncovered any leads."

    "It's such a big place to even begin to search."

    A spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said, "The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is working with Australian and UK police authorities as they search for an Australian man reported missing in the United Kingdom.

    "DFAT is providing consular assistance to the man’s family."

    "Due to our Privacy Act obligations, we will not provide further comment.”

    Anyone with information on Riley's whereabouts in urged to contact local police or his family on helprileycommins@gmail.com.
